As no greek holiday is complete without a sea cruise, we offer you oppurtunity to visit two wonderful places. The picturesque town of Parga which lies on the greek mainland and the island Paxos situated close to the southern coast of Corfu.
Departing from the harbour of Corfu, we have a unique view of the old town, situated among the two Venetian fortresses. Heading towards the south of Corfu we see the Kanoni peninsula and the palace of Mon Repos where Prince Phillip was born. We also see the tourist resorts Perama, Benitses as well as the most southern part of Corfu – Kavos and Asprokavos.
As we approach the channel between Corfu and Paxos we see in front of us the green island of Paxos covered with olives and cyprus trees.
Entering the narrow channel, which leads us to the picturesque small port of Gaios village, we see a breathtaking view of the two islands Panagia and Agios Nikolaos.
From the harbour close to the center of Gaios you can easily walk through the wonderful narrow streets and enjoy your lunch at one of the tradional tavernas.
Then we head towards the greek mainland and the town of Parga which is a large picturesque village with island character, a rich and eventful history, rare physical beauty, interlaced beaches, emerald sea, calm bays, olive groves, a healthy climate, romantic side streets and pathways with two three storey houses forming an amphitheatre under imposing remain of a Venetian castle.
As we return to Corfu we travel close to the mainland enjoying the sun and help yourself to refreshments which may be purchased from the bar.
